It is no longer a secret that municipalities can serve their residents even better through the smart use of data. But how you actually arrive at these valuable insights is another story. And you can tell that story very well!

Who are you going to work with?
A large part of our data initiatives come together within the organisation-wide program ‘Smart fast and digital’. This program consists of two teams: the Digital team and the Data team. You work with the second team. A multidisciplinary team, with data engineer/BI specialists, GEO specialists, information managers, source application managers, project leaders and the team coordinator. Together we convert ideas into results and transfer them to the organization.

Your focus is in the social domain. You are part of the Business Management team of the Care and Support department (ZenO). As a result, you work closely on a daily basis with the social domain information manager and functional managers of Centric Suite4SociaalDomein and other applications. You will talk to various colleagues and departments within the social domain and map out wishes and possibilities. You provide advice and input for policy development based on data.

What are you going to do?
As a data analyst, your work consists of various subjects. Such as including the social domain management in interpreting developments. Translating data into information that fits the information needs. Ensure that you are well aware of available internal and external data about the social domain and advise your colleagues on this and:

  • You are well aware of available data and information about the social domain, you are able to select from it and translate this into useful advice with which you respond to the needs of your colleagues;
  • You make descriptive and diagnostic analyzes and report on the insights you generate from this: are objectives being achieved and what are the causes of any deviations? You can use the data warehouse and other data sources and for the visualization of Cognos;
  • You supervise the development of information products (reports/dashboards) together with substantive experts from the professional departments and coordinate with the data engineer and the BI specialist of the data team;
  • You work on the further development of our social domain dashboard and proactively evaluate what various improvement initiatives have delivered. This ensures measurable improvements that lead to growth in all areas;
  • You organize inspiration sessions, training courses and workshops in the field of data-driven working to increase the technical skills and data awareness of the organization;
  • You keep track of and contribute to improving data quality in the social domain;
  • You actively contribute to the program goals of the Smart, Fast and Digital program and
  • You support the implementation in the social domain by developing control information.

There is already a good foundation. The municipality has access to an Oracle data warehouse that opens up multiple sources. We work with Cognos as a BI tool and with Pentaho as an ETL tool. You can carry out one-off data analysis assignments yourself (with the support of the data team), longer use of data is handled centrally in the data team so that knowledge about the dashboard and underlying data is secured.

Why is this the job for you?
There are a wealth of projects waiting for you. There is a great demand for information, especially within the social domain, and the task is often complex. Do you know your way around the large amount of data available about the social domain? Are you an expert at solving data puzzles, do you enjoy talking to end users and do you get energy from working together with colleagues from different departments? If you also have an affinity with the social domain, then apply!

What do you have?
You have already found your way in the world of data. You will be enthusiastic about our working method in which we use data to improve our services.

  • You have a demonstrable HBO/WO working and thinking level;
  • You have demonstrable work experience with data analysis tools such as Python, R or SPSS;
  • When working with data, you keep an eye on public values;
  • You are good at involving others in the story that the various data tell;
  • You are aware of the privacy sensitivity of data and
  • Knowledge and experience with Centric applications for the social domain such as Suite4SocialDomein and Cognos is an advantage. If you have no experience in this, we are happy to help you master this.
